Satisfactory progress.

(a) If a student is enrolled in an program of study of


more than two academic years, to be eligible to receive title IV,
HEA program assistance after the second year, in addition to
satisfying the requirements contained in Sec. 668.32(f), the
student must be making satisfactory under the provisions of
paragraphs (b), (c) and (d) of this section.

(b) A student is making satisfactory progress if, at the


end of the second year, the student has a grade point average
of at least a "C" or its equivalent, or has academic standing
consistent with the institution's requirements for graduation.

(c) An institution may find that a student is making


satisfactory progress even though the student does not satisfy
the requirements in paragraph (b) of this section, if the
institution determines that the student's failure to meet those
requirements is based upon--

(1) The death of a relative of the student;

(2) An injury or illness of the student; or

(3) Other special circumstances.

(d) If a student is not making satisfactory progress at


the end of the second year, but at the end of a subsequent
grading period comes into compliance with the institution's
requirements for graduation, the institution may consider the
student as making satisfactory progress beginning with the next
grading period.

(e) At a minimum, an institution must review a


student's academic progress at the end of each year.
